‘The Prince’ Issues Challenge – Welcomes All Contenders!


Ahmed ‘The Prince’ Faress is the most dominant force in Egyptian Mixed Martial Arts history. A fighter who racked up a perfect 12-0 on the national circuit, Ahmed Faress has since held loftier goals in major international promotions such as Desert Force and Brave Combat Federation. Having tested himself in countries as diverse as India and South Africa, ‘The Prince’ now looks to bring his experience and finely-honed skills home one more time at AUFC from Cairo, Egypt.

All he needs now is an opponent…

While Egyptian featherweights and bantamweights will no doubt be wary of locking horns with one of the most skilled fighters in the Middle East, a man with no fewer than 14 stoppages from 14 victories, AUFC has agreed to widen the net in the search for fresh match ups.

Who will step up to the plate?

Alaa Mansour to Face JJ Ambrose at Wawan 18: Thor vs Superman!


Kuwait’s first and only international-level MMA promotion, Wawan Fighting Championship has announced that Wawan FC 18 will feature an epic bout between two of MMA’s finest free agents.

Saracens MMA star and founder of Cairo’s Black Bulls team, Alaa ‘Thor’ Mansour, will lock horns with one of the sport’s most prolific and experienced fighters in J.J. ‘Superman’ Ambrose at Wawan FC 18: Thor vs Superman.

Ambrose, an exponent of Phuket Top Team, boasts a stellar 28-8 (2 NC) record accounting for no fewer than 16 opponents by way of submission – 15 of those by way of a variety of chokeholds. An Affliction, Bellator, Pancrase and The Ultimate Fighter veteran, Ambrose has an extraordinary résumé – but has met few fighters with the vicious KO power of ‘Thor’ Mansour!

The holder of the fastest ever KO in Jordanian MMA promotion Desert Force Championship’s history, Alaa has laid waste to all and sundry, compiling an impressive 6-1 MMA mark alongside a still-perfect 11-0 record in Muay Thai. Having attracted interest from Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship in the United States, as well as from promotions as far afield as Chinese Taipei, Mansour is undoubtedly one of the hottest properties in the sport today. He knows a win over Ambrose will propel his career to the next level, and will be seeking to stop ‘Superman’ in his tracks with the vicious ‘Thor’ hammer!

“I believe in one thing,” Alaa told SaracensMMA.com as news of the fight broke, “if you want to be a great person you must achieve great things. That’s what I’m always trying to do, alongside my brothers at Saracens MMA and Black Bulls. I dream big, and I’m not afraid to fight anyone in the world!”

The man they call ‘Thor’ added: “Ambrose may have been on TUF, but he hasn’t faced any ‘TUF’ shots – he’ll know exactly what I mean the second I touch him!”


The Black Bulls Earn Their Blue Belts Courtesy of BJJ Master Abdelhamed Sadik!


The Saracens MMA – Black Bulls alliance united two of the best teams in Middle Eastern MMA. When an outstanding gym, the Saracens-Black Bulls Academy (SBA) in Cairo was unveiled earlier this year, it was clear mixed martial arts in Egypt had a new focal point. An outstanding centre of learning combining the knowledge and excellence of the nation’s finest martial artists, SBA has gone from strength to strength, and two of the top fighters in the Black Bulls teams have benefited by attaining their Blue Belts in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Devastating kickboxer Alaa Mansour, holder of the fastest KO in Desert Force MMA history with a 14-second stoppage, and Eslam Syaha, a 7-1 man-mountain with an unquenchable thirst to become the best-of-the-best, were both awarded the accolade by famed Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Master and Black Belt Abdelhamed Sadik.

Sadik, based out of Torrance, California, is not only one of the most respected BJJ practitioners in the sport, but also a world class coach. His presence at the SBA facility was an honour for all members of the Saracens MMA and Black Bulls team members, and we at SaracensMMA.com look forward to reporting on many more promotions for these two tremendous fighters!
